Dihydroactinidiolide is a volatile terpene. It has a sweet, tea-like odor and is used as a fragrance. Dihydroactinidiolide occurs naturally in black tea, fenugreek, fire ants, mangos, silver vine, and tobacco. It has also been prepared synthetically.
Additional recommended knowledge
As with nepetalactone, found in catnip, dihydroactinidiolide is a cat attractant. Cultivators of silver vine (which contains another such chemical, actinidine, which is also a cat attractant) sometimes find their plants destroyed by enthusiastic cats.
